I hardly touch curated playlists but I make many of my own. For me it's the on-demand nature of streaming and the ability to try out anything instantly. I now listen to every new symphony recording when it comes out and I've discovered so much wonderful music that I'd never otherwise have tried. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2dIQtWPjnTxHnZXFuPa4wM?si=ab3b5cc12d6549d2
We are happy that our music’s being picked up via streaming services by people who otherwise wouldn’t have had access to it. There’s no reason for us to be on the streaming platforms other than visibility (through findability) 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♂️ more on our personal stance as put into words by Alex Ross 👉 https://www.newyorker.com/culture/cultural-comment/imagine-a-world-without-spotify @CeciliaBell @thewagnerian @sehe @classicalmusic
@classicalmusic @CeciliaBell @sehe @dudokquartet @thewagnerian I do realise that all streaming services pass on absurdly small fees to musicians - but Qobuz (my preferred service for classical) has enabled me to listen to whole albums that have been briefly excerpted on BBCR3's Record Review. And @dudokquartet ‘s wonderful Brahms, and the latest Shostakovich/Baciewicz, has made me sure to book a ticket when (I hope] they next do a London concert.
